FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will I look good in my photos?
Hell yes! Weddings are happy occasions, right? If you spend your wedding day laughing with your partner, catching up and sharing silly stories with long lost friends and family, you'll be comfortable, happy and relaxed. I'll be right there to catch you having fun! Of course, weddings can be stressful too, so when it's time for your private portraits, I'll be sure to prompt you to breathe and relax your shoulders.
What is your approach to wedding photography?
My style is very relaxed and natural so you won't have to worry about posing. During most of your day, I capture moments and emotions as they happen. Check out my About Me page or Contact Me and I will be happy to send you password-protected sample client gallery.
We'd love to invest in your services! What do we need to know?
Currently, our wedding photography commissions begin at £950 for up to five hours (half-day) of coverage. You can also add a second photographer, additional hours and a hand-crafted wedding album to create your own collection. Full personal usage rights is included in all collections, so you can print and share your photos on or offline. Feel free to contact the studio for more information and receive a personalised quote.
How do we reserve your services?
After confirming that the studio is available on your wedding date, you will be directed to a secure link to read and sign your contract online. A retainer/booking fee (a percentage of your wedding collection) is due upon signing the contract. If your wedding is less than two months away, the full balance is due upon contract-signing. When the signed contract and the retainer are received by the studio, your date will be removed from our availability calendar and you are booked! YAY!
When (& how) will we receive our photographs?
Your images will generally be delivered in an average of six weeks from your wedding date. If the images are ready before this time-frame, they will be delivered to you without delay. Hand-crafted albums included in your photography collection, will be delivered within ten weeks of your final approval. You will receive your images via a beautifully presented USB.
How many photographs will be receive?
The number of photographs you receive, depends on the photography coverage you desire and the flow of your wedding day. A five-hour wedding with 25 guests and one photographer would yield fewer images than a ten-hour wedding with 300 guests captured by two photographers. When you request a quote, you will receive an estimate of the number of images you can expect, based on your specific photography needs.
Do you shoot alone or with an additional photographer?
It's usually me documenting wedding days. Many couples don't want a second photographer and in many cases, an additional photographer is not necessary, so it's not automatically included in my collections. You can of course, add an additional shooter to create a more bespoke collection to suit your day. I may even advise that you add an additional photographer to your collection if you have a large guest list or if your wedding day celebration occurs in multiple locations.
How long will you stay with us on your wedding day?
That's all up to you! On average, brides choose eight of hours of coverage and the start-time is different for every couple. Before your big day, we will provide advice and suggestions during the process of creating your wedding day timeline.
I hate having my photo taken. Will this be a problem?
Of course not! Most people roll their eyes at the thought of posing for portraits (except for selfies?! haha). My aim on your wedding day is to capture moments and emotions as they happen, not awkward poses. At the beginning of your day, you might be a bit self-conscious in my presence, but when you see your favourite Aunt Julie for the first time in five years, you'll forget that I'm in the corner of the room with my camera. Most couples allocate time for formal family portraits which requires a bit of posing but I will make this as quick and painless as possible, I promise!
Do you have insurance?
Yes, of course! YES!
Do you also provide videography?
No, I don't. This is my full time job, so I focus exclusively on capturing your day using still photography. I'd be more than happy to help you find a talented wedding filmmaker.
